About Daily Newspapers

The Morris Publishing Group (MPG) has 11 daily newspapers and dozens of powerful digital assets in its portfolio.

Five of the dailies are concentrated in the southeast: The Florida Times-Union (Jacksonville), The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle, the Savannah (Ga.) Morning News and the Athens (Ga.) Banner-Herald, the St. Augustine (Fla.) Record. Two are in the Texas Panhandle: the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal and the Amarillo Globe-News.

One is in the state capital of Kansas:  The Topeka Capital-Journal. The group also has dailies in Conway, Ar., The Log Cabin Democrat. The final two are in Alaska: The Juneau Empire and The Peninsula Clarion in Kenai.

In 2011 MPG embarked on a path of transformation from a traditional newspaper company to a digital-first media company.  This shift in focus has positioned MPG to fully engage with audiences on multiple platforms providing advertisers exciting new ways to connect with quality audiences and upscale consumers.

In many ways, the digital journey and rebranding process for MPG is just beginning. New products, processes and leadership are being developed daily, led by Derek May and his new management team, which has special focus on sales, audience development and operations.
